This weekend I asked Mat what flavour cupcake he would like me to bake and he requested choc mint. So I googled away until I found a few recipes that I was happy to try out. I found this recipe for chocolate cake and made it taste slightly minty by adding an eighth of a teaspoon of peppermint essence, the recipe made 22 small cupcakes. I then used this recipe for mint frosting and added just a few drops of green food colouring to make it look that little bit more minty, the recipe made more than enough frosting for all of the cupcakes. Finally I topped the cupcakes with a small slice of mint patty.
Mat - 8/10
Me - 6/10 (I think the frosting needs some work still)
